Go to the latest Data Digest

This year's Data Digest, in its sixth edition, continues the tradition of providing the University community with a broad array of institutional data. Recognized as an essential resource, the Digest has now made access to data easier than ever before by being available in print, online, and CD-ROM formats.

Each edition of the Digest also includes the progress Purdue University is making toward its Strategic Plan goals of Learning, Discovery, and Engagement. The Board of Trustees initially approved Purdue's five-year strategic plan in 2001. Recognizing that several major strategic initiatives, including some building projects, will not be completed until 2007, the Board has extended the strategic plan period by one more year. The Digest will therefore include progress report data on the current strategic plan through 2007.

This year's edition of the Digest brings you expanded coverage of the University's efforts toward engagement with the state, national, and international communities. We are pleased to provide more information about programs that have educational, social, and economic impact on the state of Indiana. From Engineering Projects In Community Service (EPICS) to invention and commercialization of new technology and collaborations with the public and private sectors, our initiatives are helping to ensure that at Purdue — It's Happening Here.

It is our hope that you will find this edition of the Data Digest to be a valuable resource for information on Purdue University.

Rabindra N. Mukerjea,
Director of Strategic Planning and Assessment
